Fuck y'all who didn't vote for Ran and Peeping Tom.

As usual it's going to be roughly a week for round 2. I'll get you a definite deadline later.

Those were the final six I thought we'd get with Ran being a possible replacement for DMS. I donít know whether it is a case of familiarity breeding contempt but having thought about Whore of Fame recently Iíve personally found it an underwhelming (or less interesting) round. Meh or maybe I just donít like films


Votes Sent and Good Luck Everyone!

You know what I think it is? There's so many big name films that it looks a really impressive line-up and it's exciting at first, but there's little new to discover there. So if you're already familiar or over-familiar with everything, it can get a little old.

Robert, I told you Midnight Run wouldn't make it to round two, so stop being a Mr. Grouchy Pants about it.

Sending my votes now.

Ooooh, look at the fancy-pants hipsters.

Anyway, remember people, a vote for Dead Man's Shoes is a vote for the underdog - and we all want the underdog to win, don't we?

Matty, I thought the restraining order very clearly stated that you were to make no reference to my clothing, fancy or otherwise.

Agreed, Peeping Tom's lack of psychologist should have got it through.

At least it got one more vote than My Little Eye.

Poor Midnight Run. It's a great film, just overshadowed in this round.

Yeah, I voted for Midnight Run really highly to try and get it through, but alas it was not to be.

Bugger, I just realised my brain melted down slightly. I thought it was MonsterCat who only had one vote for his film, not MovieAddict. I'm sure she'll be delighted that I mixed the two up.

If we don't get a poll set up, should we just take the results from the last round for the public vote?

Poor me more like. I've done four of these things so far and only one nom made it to the third round.

WHEN WILL IT BE MY TIME RAWLINSON? WHEEEEEEEEEEEN?!?

I spent ages making it to the final and then never winning. Horrible, isn't it? You can't predict these things though, before feedback started coming in, I thought the final would be Ran, Taxi Driver and Jaws.

I've already decided on my nom for HOF 17.

If I make the draw, I'm breaking out one of the most whore-ish noms in HOF history!

What would be the ultimate whoreish entry?

I'm saying Raiders or maybe Raging Bull.
